Tesla crash leaves two dead

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Federal officials said Friday they will investigate a fiery Tesla crash that left two people dead in South Florida. Three investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board will travel next week to Coral Gables, where a Tesla Model 3 left the roadway and hit a tree Monday. The NTSB investigation will focus on the operation of the vehicle and the post-crash fire that consumed the car. Tesla vehicles don’t use gasoline that could raise the risk of a big fire after a crash, but the company’s guidance to first responders includes a warning about battery fires. Tesla representatives have said that high-speed collisions can result in a fire for any kind of car.
